New York on Fire

By Obenzinger, Hilton

Seattle: The Real Comet Press, 1989. Paperback. 144p., beautifully designed and printed on alkaline paperstock and illustrated with a large number of vignette period photos and drawings; oversize softbound, 11x7.5 inch glossy black and red wraps. One tiny corner-tip is bent, otherwise perfectly sound, clean and unmarked, a nice copy. Half-title has a scrawled inscription from Obenzinger, signed, and dated the year of publication. He works nonfiction into mild unorthodoxy with line-breaks --into modernist poetry in short that remains informative. Factual stuff organized by a poet. Commenced as a commercial project, write a book for a business concern, those who commissioned it went broke and Obenzinger re-fashioned his materials into this oddity endorsed by Dennis Smith, a notable writer on things (in)flamable, by fellow poets Ishmael Reed, Andrei Codrescu and Eduardo Galeano.

Hardcover. 44p., letterpress, illustrated with indifferently-reproduced b&w photography of waterfalls, presswork on heavily laid-lined paperstock watermarked "Old Stratford", a wouldbe finepress treatment that isn't a clean miss but, per lame content, certainly no great exemplar. Hardbound in 7.5x5.5 inch clothbacked paper over boards, cover-titled, boards are foxed and seriously dirty. Hinges quite sound, textblock good except for foxing to untrimmed deckle, a fair to good copy. We find a generic bookplate on front pastedown and a printed label on rear pastedown announcing "Sold by California Historical Society San Francisco July, 1944" FYI, copyright is assigned to Mabel Symmes; and some poems appear courtesy Sunset Publishing Company. Sample quattrain: "The Scots may vaunt their highland,/The English praise the lea,/But a green Sierran meadow/Surpasses all for me.
